Philosophy Honors Program

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Colleges and Departments

The department offers students an opportunity to graduate with honors in philosophy. The option is encouraged for students intending to pursue graduate or advanced professional degrees. Philosophy majors and philosophy/ pre-law majors may be invited to apply or may nominate themselves. In either case, to be considered for Honors in Philosophy, students must have earned at least 60 credits in total, with a minimum 3.25 cumulative GPA and a minimum 3.5 GPA in philosophy courses. Honors in Philosophy requires completion of a two-semester, 6-credit, Honors Thesis Independent Study. The honors thesis is completed individually under the direction of a department professor who specializes in the student’s area of interest and is approved by a thesis committee comprising the director and two other readers. To determine how honors will be integrated into existing requirements for the philosophy or philosophy/pre-law major, students should consult their assigned advisors. Students completing the departmental honors program are recognized at departmental commencement ceremonies.
